Our Buttercup Cotton is as gentle as a tiny wildflower in a breeze and as sweet as a sunny carpet of yellow blossoms! Like our Cotton Pure, it is 100% organically grown, non-mercerized cotton, but Buttercup Cotton is a lighter weight, perfect for heirloom baby gear, fine washcloths, and summertime sweaters. Available  in 100-gram, 364-yard skeins, its smooth spin is a fingering weight, best knit on US 2 or 3 (3 or 3.25 mm) needles. Buttercup Cotton is machine wash- and dry-able and wonderfully soft!
